There's no doubt, lions are spectacular animals. Our pride of lions, made up of two females and one very handsome male, is consistently one of the most popular species in the Zoo.     


Adopt-an-Animal: Lion

African lions currently range in east, south and central Africa. Male lions weigh between 330 and 550 pounds, while female lions weigh from 265 to 395 pounds. Lions have nine distinct vocalizations; the roar can be heard at a distance of five miles and is usually heard at sundown. The remaining sounds have not been interpreted but appear to have meaning within the pride.

Your Adopt-an-Animal donation will be used to support these magnificent creatures and further the San Francisco Zoological Society’s mission to connect people to wildlife, inspire caring for nature and advance conservation action.

All sales are final.
